Graphics — 5/5
Graphics are amazing in LEGO style when everything resembles this constructor. You will build expressive constructions brick by brick and enjoy the result. Bright colors and plenty of elements make images vivid and charming.
Gameplay — 5/5
You can play in co-op mode with two mates exploring an open-world metropolis LEGO City. It is large and consists of over 20 districts which should be investigated. Here so many things happen and require your interference and attention. You will enjoy original storytelling with a witty contest which provides you with great playing experience.
The action takes place in the virtual Lego City. You will navigate a cop Chase McCain who is moving along the streets and hunting for criminals. He can perform various uncommon actions. He is able to execute wall jumps, swing across poles, disguise, and gain additional abilities. Chase is very skillful. He can drive cars and pilot helicopters, build constructions of bricks. He will communicate with other characters if he manages to unlock them. You can custom them to fulfill particular functions of a communicator or a scanner allowing to find the location of criminals.
You will definitely notice that the gameplay of this game has much in common with the Grand Theft Auto series if you played them before. But still, it is different. Being a police officer, you will enforce the law, and you will not commit a crime. Mind that game size is 18.13 GB which requires some spare space on your device.
